The Plan

Ken's son, Kevin (16), participated in a summer program at PSU where he helped create self-driving car software. The whole team was invited to Brussels in September to talk about their project at the AutoSens car show in Brussels, Belgium. Ken decided to tag along and extend the trip a bit to visit Medjugorje with his son.

Ken plans to use this trip to ensure the Spring Pilgrimage will go as smoothly as possible. He'll talk to hotels, get current schedules, and any other information that might be helpful. Ken will share his entire trip information here, keep checking back for updates and feel free to send Ken your questions or a message, he'd love to hear from you!
